Simple, interactive graphic on gun control

ProPublica has put up a new graphic that shows at a glance where members of Congress stand on gun rights and gun control. Using the now-standard red and blue tints to indicate party affiliation, Republican or Democrat, the graphic shows the NRA’s ratings for both Senate and House members, NRA contributions to each member, and how they voted on the previous assault weapons ban. It’s timely, useful and clear as a bell. ┬áThe source of the data for each tab is also clearly noted. Nicely done.
